I am a full-time professional tutor with over a decade of experience. Many people teach the SAT and ACT as part-time work. I have my own company and teach students standardized tests every day. My teachers and I keep the lessons fun and engaging. I personally hire all of my instructors. My instructors and I not only have years of teaching experience, but we also work to connect with our students and act as mentors and coaches. We are a small company with an excellent track record. We have a unique curriculum that is a mix of old and new teaching methods. We recently helped students achieve perfect scores on the SAT and ACT.

Jim really connected with my son, made him feel more confident about preparing for and taking the SAT. He was also really helpful through the college application and essay writing process. Highly recommend--will use again for my 2 younger children!

Our daughter worked with James directly for several months prior to taking the June ACT and as a result of the lessons including one-on-one sessions and follow-up work, her score jumped 10 points! I highly recommend James and his team!!!!

Frequently asked questions

At the first lesson, I like to meet with both the student and the parents (if possible) to discuss the test preparation process. I introduce the student to the test, take a look at results from any past tests they have taken, and together we figure out where improvements can be made. Each student is unique, so I try to address the student's personal concerns about the test or subject he or she needs help with. Then we work from there to achieve the desired results.

I had top scores when I took the ACT and SAT. I went through the test preparation process myself. I hold a Master of Fine Arts in writing. I was mentored by some of the best writers in Los Angeles, including Academy Award nominee Leonard Schrader. This background has given me a unique way of approaching writing and the college application essay. I share this perspective with my students. I also trained with many different tutoring companies over the years before I started my own business. I continue to develop new methods for all of the standardized tests and subjects I teach.
